A great novel without any boring parts.

What made the experience of listening to The Final Minute the most enjoyable?

It is entertainment from the first to the last minute.

What other book might you compare The Final Minute to and why?

Only Simon Kernick is able to write a such book, why The Final minute can only be compared to some of his earlier books. However, in my opinion, The Final Minute is his best novel so far because Simon Kernick has written less unrealistic events in this book.

Have you listened to any of Paul Thornley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Wery well, indeed. Paul Thornley is my number one.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, not really. But dividing it to 12 - 18 parts while taking a daily walk makes the walking alot easier, even in lousy weather.

Any additional comments?

Of course, Simon Kernick books are nothing for "deep thinkers", only great entertainment with some unrealistic parts just as in a 007 James Bond film.

Good page-turner

An engaging, fast-paced thriller. The characters have some dimensions which save them from being mere espionage stereotypes. The framework of the story, an amnesiac racing against time to regain his memory, holds up well.

Pretty good listen

Although not his best book this is not bad and passed a few evenings. I thought the ending could have gone in various ways and was a little disappointed in the way it did. It was the least entertaining, but very gritty and leaves the way open for another book featuring the main character. The narrator is my least favourite on audible, so I found myself drifting off by the end of each evening. Sadly he reads a lot of Simon Kernicks books, so it's a case of tolerate his voice or don't buy!
